    Unattached Kits

    Hey all,

    I'm about to get this made but need 8 more jerseys to make the 10 minimum of like items. Once we have that, we can order a pair bib tights here, a fleece jacket there. No minimums once we have the 10 like items. Anything on the Champion Systems catalog I can mock up for you.

    Accessories like caps and gloves however have a minimum of 10 each. So I need 9 more caps to get that order to go through. If you can get 10 people to get in on whatever accessory, I'll mock it up for you.

    Further details like sizing, prices, and turnaround are available at unattachedrider.com.

    Come on, I really want to see this kit for real.

    Black and white, I want it to scream "NEUTRAL" if such at thing is possible.

    The only thing I'm—uhm—in the grey about is the grey panel in the back of the shorts. I also have a grey panel in the rear of the jersey for continuation. I'm mostly concerned about having it all black in the back and getting too hot. I considered adding a color like orange but that strays from the generic kit idea. What's more neutral than black and white text set in Helvetica?

    Their turnaround is six weeks from the time we finalize the order.

    My friend has a rule about custom jerseys: take the turnaround time and double it. If you've placed an order with the company before then triple it.

    And he's had work done by champion systems (as well as others).

    Everyone knows that the true neutral is beige . Or my favorite color, standard apartment wall off-white.

    Thanks. I'm aware that Champion misses deadlines, and I pointed out that I'm not optismistic about the turnaround in the order details page of the link I posted earlier. Unfortunately, that is the norm for the industry.

    To be clear, as suggested in this page, this order is intended for Spring '08. Although Champion claims they can have it six weeks after the date I place the order (9/23) as their busy season starts during the holidays.

    I still like the two more subtle ones. I like having folks do double-takes.

    How about putting, ``Your freakin' $5 unattached fee can lick my berry sack'' somewhere on the jerseys? Gar.

    I am on a team but if I wasn't I'd totally get one of those kits. Nice work.

    Not really, the SoCal forum has like two jerseys I think. And BF had a jersey too (yellow/blue one).

    Aight. For everyone asking for pics of the back, the image is updated here. Prices, sizes, and turnaround info are also listed there.

    I changed the grey panel in the bib shorts to white. I think it looks better that way, and does the job of reducing solar beatdown. This design is final, as I'm sending it in and along with my deposit today. Well, it's really not final final, but I don't want to make alterations on their side as that will slow this down.

    Having owned ChampSys stuff, I'll tell you their sizes run small. So when in doubt, get a size bigger.

    incorrect.

    their sizes run true, unlike Pearl Izumi (amongst other US owned companies).
